I was lucky enough to be one of the few people invited along to Thompson and Morgans (http://www.thompson-morgan.com/) new show garden at Jimmys Farm. It was a beautiful, scorching hot day and it was fantastic to see the new trial garden looking amazing! We had a tour of the garden with notes on new additions and introductions to new flowers and plants. I will share more information on these at a later date – lots of news. Just for now a few pictures and words for an update!
We then had a great talk about all the classic and new varieties of veg and fruit there were. I particularly loved the small peppers – perfect for lunchboxes not just for kids but for adults too! Additionally, I noted down tomato and bean varieties that I want to try next year. We got to try some of the new rocket available – has a Wasabi taste hit to it. Think this will be a popular one.
After the talks and tours we then headed in to Jimmys barn and had a chance to talk to other bloggers, the T and M team and gardening experts. This was a brilliant time to get to know people – all accompanied by a superb afternoon tea selection including cake, sandwiches, scones with jam and edible flowers! A winner for me!
Before we all headed home we were given goodie bags packed with seed varieties, new compost types, plants, information booklets and the new apricot variety. Such a lot to carry but was absolutely amazing to get back home, unpack and have a good read through, gander and look at all of the produce and products. Lots more news again to come on the new additions and varieties.
Overall a fantastic afternoon with the welcoming Thompson and Morgan team, helpful as always and I relished the chance to learn more about your lovely, local company.
